[Combat help] stance

Syntax: stance 
Syntax: stance  (trained only)

Your stance determines how you react to combat.  Aggressive combatants
are more likely to hit and will dish out more damage but are also more
likely to be hit themselves and expend more energy when attacking.  

Defensive combatants are less likely to be hit and can concentrate on using
their shield for increased effectiveness and leg defense but have a reduced
rate of attack with both weapons and spells. 

Neutral is the state of not being in a stance and has neither benefits nor 
penalties.  Being knocked prone will reset your stance to neutral.  Assuming
a fighting stance takes a short amount of time and effort.

Stance also affects rescue.
